Kelly reaches base three times in Solar Sox win


10/18 Cup of Coffee: For the first six and a half innings, it looked like Mesa would suffer yet another defeat, but the Solar Sox erupted for five runs in the bottom of the seventh to stage a come-from-behind, 6-4 win over the Peoria Saguaros.

Trailing 1-0 in the fourth inning, Mike Stanton (FLA) homered to tie the score. In the fifth inning, the Saguaros regained the lead, scoring two runs off Richie Lentz. He allowed two hits, a double and an infield single. The first run scored as a result of a throwing error by the Solar Sox catcher on a double steal and the second on a sacrifice fly. Lentz then pitched a clean sixth inning, fanning two of the three hitters he faced. Peoria added another run in the seventh to stretch its lead to 4-1. In the bottom half of the seventh, Mesa scored five times on a two-run homer by Cubs prospect Wellington Castillo and a three-run blast by Steve Singleton (MIN). Mesa relievers shut down the Saguaros for the final two innings to preserve the victory.

Casey Kelly went 1 for 2 with two walks. He also scored a run. Ryan Kalish went 0 for 4 and struck out three times.
